The first season of PokerStars All Stars ran from April 12 to May 10. This private, invitation only, home game series pitted the top cash game players on PokerStars. They played a $10/$20 NLHE game and the top five winners were awarded a bonus. Hatrick19911 ended the series in the top spot and won $20,000. Daniel Negreanu reviewed the top 20 hands from the All Stars Challenge. He posted a video discussing the Top 20 hands that involved players such as 0human0, limitless, OtB_RedBaron, Sinkarma, SDMackOn, and OhHeyCindy.
You're so special. So friggin' special. You're not a creep, but an All Star! PokerStars introduced The All Stars Challenge as one of their new ways to re-distribute the wealth into the poker ecosystem. Essentially, the All Stars Challenge and Masters Challenge were ones of the different new promos they created after on shutting down the Supernova promo. For the All Star Challenge, PokerStars invited and selected the top cash game players based on a bunch of criteria. Those special All Stars played in a private home game challenge with cash prizes awarded to the Top 5 cash players. The leaderboard winner got a $20,000 bonus, with $13,500 to second place, $10,000 to third, $7,500 to fourth, and $5,000 to fifth. Those All Stars slugged it out at the $10/$20 NL stakes.
PokerStars also created a special home game series for low-stakes grinders called The Masters Table. Those stakes were $1/$2 NL. The special invited players were vying for a $5K bonus for the top rank.
Our favorite human content generator, Daniel Negreanu, sat down and watched every single hand. Okay, maybe he didn't watch every single one. But he watched a bunch from the All Stars Table and selected the Top 20 hands.
According to Negreanu, he picked... "the coolest, best hands of the week. This is insane. These guys play next-level poker!"
He gave a little commentary about each of the hands. Some of the hands were played by limitless, 0human0, OtB_RedBaron, Sinkarma, Hatrick19911, SDMackOn, OhHeyCindy, and Jakeeeeeeeeeeeee.
